Becoming colder

29th March 2022

A return to colder conditions overnight will re-freeze the existing snowpack giving some serious consequences in the event of an uncontrolled slip or fall, axe and crampons required.  Light falls of new snow and variable North-Easterly winds will form isolated areas of windslab which will be poorly bonded to the underlying old re-frozen snow. These areas are not expected to be deep or extensive.

 

Great Springtime skiing today at Glencoe Mountain Resort. The classic Spring Run is left of centre.
